Coolest Homemade Ghostbusters Logo Halloween Costume 32
Homemade Ghostbusters Logo Halloween Costume
The Homemade Ghostbusters Logo Halloween Costume is made of foam, fleece, felt and stuffing. The Back disc is made from 4-24" x 24" 2" foam pieces cut to make 4 pie pieces. These are then connected by hot glue and spray adhesive to make the whole disc. It is covered with black felt.
The outer red circle used a 24" x 24" 4" piece of foam cut into 6 - 6"x 24" pieces that are connected end to end and covered in red felt. It is then connected to the disc using spray/glue leaving a section at the bottom unglued where I slide into. The cross bar is also made from left over pieces from the 2" foam, covered with the red felt and connected to the red outer circle with industrial strength Velcro once I am inside.
The ghost costume was made out of white fleece with pattern pieces I created. The body is velcroed in the back. The hands look like the original and were gloves slipped on. The head is lined with 1/4" foam to make it more original looking. Areas that needed stuffing were stuffed once I was inside the "circle". The disc was connected to my body by cutting slats behind me, and using a belt, secured to me.
To support the bottom, felt strips were cut and braided and then tied around the bottom. Wide ribbon was used like suspenders, tucked under the ghost costume and secured to these strips.

This Homemade Ghostbusters Group Costume is a great costume idea for a group of five, especially if one guy has the right size to do the marshmallow-man.
For the Ghostbusters costumes we took four regular worker's overalls and bought some patches, Ghostbuster logos for the sleeves and one for the back-pocket. And of course badges with the names of the guys. We reactivated some good old army boots and we used old socks as elbow pads. If you're a bunch of white guys like us, one needs to put on some dark makeup to make a good Winston Zeddemore. That's pretty much it for the basic costume.
The tricky part was the backpacks. At first we thought about doing handicraft work with old vacuum cleaner tubes or something like that. But then we came up with the marvelous idea of using beer-backpacks. If it's factious that you have to wear a backpack for the whole time, why not carrying something useful? Now tell me something more useful to carry during a party than beer! We did some handicraft work on the tubes ends to have a handholds, but instead of shooting ghosts we enjoyed our beer.
Now, the marshmallow man is complete homemade. A white overall with filling material, white gloves and homemade collar and hat. Some white makeup, and there you go, and don't forget to bring some marshmallows with you.

Homemade Ghostbuster Ghost Boy's Halloween Costume Idea
My son LOVES the Ghostbusters movies, but we wanted to do something other than the Busters themselves. I turned him into the actual ghost stuck in the “NO” sign. I used a small hula hoop and traced a big circle on a large piece of cardboard. I made it about 2-3” thick and put the “ / “ through it. I cut this out, and then traced another circle on another piece of cardboard. I duct taped the hula hoop to one of the circles and taped a stick on the “ / “. I then put the other circle on top of this one and started putting 8” strips of red duct tape all around the whole thing, being careful not to “squish” the circles to much (I cut my duct tape on a large cutting board and use a rotary blade – very quick).
Bought a big white sweatshirt for $12.00 and face paint for $1.00 and he was good to go. Total cost with duct tape: about $17.00.
